Only One More Week at Home...

As some of you know, our fall/early winter is jam-packed with travels.  We have officially been home for one week since China and we have exactly one week left until we hit the road for 4-5 months.  Things around our house have been pretty busy from dealing with lost luggage, trip planning and socializing to Tommy training ultra-hard for his Mescalito project on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park and me getting trained to run a trail half marathon!  Our travel schedule (so you all can keep track of us in case we get lost) is as listed:  Jackson, WY for 1 week, Yosemite for 7 weeks, Brazil for Corey and Marina Rich's wedding for one week, and then down to Patagonia, Argentina for 1-2 months.  Lots of excitement and chaos here in the Caldwell household.  

Amongst the excitement, our good friend, Kelly Cordes, decided he needed to change things up a bit and asked me if I could give him a haircut.  I'm used to giving Tommy haircuts and was up for the task.  However, he then he threw in that he was interested in growing a mullet for South America later in the season, and thought that maybe some stripes would be fitting as well.  I decided to stick to my commitment and brought on the challenge.  After no luck trying to google how to put stripes in someone's hair I grabbed the clippers, talked over with Kelly, drew some diagrams and started clipping.  Patrick Martchink, our roommate, gave some input and I think the results are promising.  Who knew Kelly Cordes could look this good!!

"Trimming" Kelly's neck hair led to shaving his back because the hairline did not stop.  :)
The final product.  He can really pull it off folks!
